The Loring Park neighborhood is a bicyclist & pedestrian paradise with easy access to bicycle trails, a 15 minute walk to the downtown and uptown areas, and excellent public transportation.
Boundaries and Zip Code
Loring Park is located on the southwest edge of downtown Minneapolis.
North: 12th Street & the I-394 downtown connector
Surveys conducted in the early 19th Century out of Fort Snelling identified significant geological features of the area now know as the Loring Park Neighborhood; a long ridge running east & west about one mile south of St Anthony Falls referred to as “The Devil's Ridge” and a tamarack bog located at the base of the ridge.
In 1855 Joseph Johnson established a farm on the edge of the wetlands, & 25 years later the tamarack bog was carved up & carted away to become “Central Park” which was renamed in honor of the first Superintendent of Minneapolis' new park system, Charles Loring.
